Sandie's new trick!
 
This is Day 9 of Sandie's stall rest for her recent surgery, and to cure the boredom, we decided to learn some tricks! So this is me training Sandie how to "shake" :-) Enjoy!!


PS she's only had 2 days of training so far, can't believe how fast they catch on!

Thanks, she is very smart!! :-) I just said "shake", patted her leg, and then at first I had to pull it up and forward myself, then give her the treat and say "good girl"! But after a few repetitions, she started to catch on! Eventually, I'm going to have her lift it high and way out in front of her so it's really a good shake! And oh, I use Tic Tacs as treats! Low calorie/sugar and very tiny, but they are strong and she loves the minty taste.

And as an added bonus, when they hear the Tic Tacs in there shaking around they know what they are..works wonders out at the pasture gate when you want them to come in! ;-)
